2019 Pricing

2019 Format & Pricing

For 2019 we are keeping the classic Fri/Sat mini-weekend intact, and offering an afternoon of your choice of small-group Balboa classes or a Collegiate Shag intensive on Sunday as optional add-ons to your mini weekend base pass.

In addition to the Collegiate Shag elective, we are excited to offer 2 nights of live music for 2019!





Fri/Sat Mini-Weekend base pass: this pass will include the Friday dance, 4 hours of leveled workshops on Saturday, and the Saturday night dance. (This is pretty much I *Heart* Bal "classic," if you will). Both the Friday and the Saturday dance will feature the Mint Julep Jazz Band this year! This pass also includes the Sunday evening farewell dance, so if you are still in town, come on out and dance.

Optional Balboa Small Group Sunday add-on: this buy-up from the base pass includes 4 hours of small-group workshops for Levels A, B, & C on Sunday afternoon. (Available as an addition to a Fri/Sat Mini-Weekend or Dance Pass only. Not available as a stand-alone pass). These will be smaller than the Saturday classes and will give you an opportunity to work more closely with the instructors (we are aiming for no more than 10 leads/10 follows per group).  These are everyone's favorite part of the weekend and tend to sell out.

Optional Collegiate Shag Sunday add-on: New for 2019! This buy-up from the base pass includes 4 hours of all-levels Collegiate Shag workshops with Chelsea & David Lee on Sunday afternoon.  (Available as an addition to a Fri/Sat Mini-Weekend or Dance Pass only. Not available as a stand-alone pass)

Beginner Crash Course Saturday Pass: this specially discounted Saturday pass includes 4 hours of beginner Balboa instruction on Saturday, as well as the Saturday dance. It does not include any other of our weekend dances, but you are welcome to pay at the door for those.

Dance Pass: Don't want to take classes? This pass gets you all the dances in the weekend at a discounted rate if you register ahead of time.  (It can also be used as a base pass if you only want the Sunday add on classes, but not Saturday workshops).

As always, those who register earliest will get the very best deals and follows are especially encouraged to register early.
